People Prevent Suicide

No two people will grieve in the same way. Some will find support groups helpful; others may rely on friends’ support. Some may turn to books; others may go to therapy.
Some may take weeks to get back to “normal life”; others may find that life as they remember it no longer exists and they need to redefine themselves. Our response to the aftermath of suicide is shaped by a number of things – past experiences with death and loss, other current life stressors, our mental health, our family cultural traditions, our relationship with the deceased (e.g., strength of bond, presence of conflict, etc.), the circumstances surrounding the death, our support system, and our personality.

People feel a range of emotions in the aftermath of suicide – not everyone will go through all of these experiences and the length of each may differ, but these are common emotional reactions that often come like a tidal wave unexpectedly and repeatedly.  Learn how to stop it before it happens, or at least how to deal with it after.  Hopefully to stop it before it happens.

The New Face of Divorce: First Wives World

First Wives World is a private, secure environment for women going through separation, relationship challenges or divorce, providing support through social networking, forums, discussions, groups, resources and relevant news. Our core goal is to build a community of support to help women on their journey to recovery, and provide them the best resources, experts, mentors, tools and communities (both online and offline) required to move their lives forward with smarts, friendship and insight from a community who understands.

First Wives World is dedicated to supporting its members through the numerous life stages and challenges before them, as well as providing educated ways to set up a new life-plan moving forward. Through new tools, more organized resources and the first social network uniquely designed for divorced and divorcing women, we hope to create new ways for women to discuss divorce more openly with others going through exactly what they’re going through in a safe, private environment, with anonymity, and protected from the search engines.

Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH)

The Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH) offers hope and valuable resources to those seeking information about sexual addiction.

SASH hopes you are able to find information or a therapeutic professional, medical institution or treatment facility to assist you on your particular journey.

A conservative estimate of those who could meet the criteria for sexual addiction and compulsivity is that of about 3 – 5% of the United States population. This is most likely a very conservative estimate, since these numbers are based on individuals who seek treatment.

Based on alcohol and drug statistics, we do know that more people suffer from this problem, than actually seek treatment. These percentages may be based on what we currently understand sexual addiction and compulsivity to be, and should not be interpreted as unchanging truths.
